Guest Post: Kelsie's Nail Files Gets WILD!

Goooood morning, all my little lacquerbeans! Today's guest poster is Kelsie from Kelsie's Nail Files! I've been following her blog for a long time, and I am just in awe of EVERY manicure she posts! They are always perfect and neat and just so stinkin' adorable. I am so so so happy that she agreed to post for me today on my blog! [but a little bit sad that I didn't think to do this amazing mani first! ;-)] Enjoy!


Hello Lovely Lacquered Ladies!! For those of you who might not know me, I am Kelsie from Kelsie's Nail Files, and I am so thrilled to be here today! :) I have been following Ariel's lovely blog on bloglovin' for a long time now and I adore both her clever blog title and gorgeous nails! When she asked me to guest post for her, so she could study up for med school, I couldn't say no. 

It took me a little while to come up with a manicure... but Ariel's blog title got me thinking... and I thought about my go-to manicure when I'm feeling down... Nothing beats a classic red mani!

Of course I couldn't just leave it as is so I added a little animal print accent nail (one of my go-to techniques when I'm not sure what to do on my nails) 

I started with a base of Cult Nails Evil Queen and created the animal print using Finger Paints Paper Mache and Black Expressionism. 

I want to say a huge thank you to Ariel for letting me crash her blog today... and I wish her all the luck in her studies! 

Thanks for reading!


Thank YOU, Kelsie! What an amazing mani!

Please check out Kelsie's blog and other pages and show her some love! :-)


  1. Such a cute manicure! I love your leopard print accent nail :)

  2. I've never done a leopard print, but this makes me want to do one! Seriously cool.
